you mark the tile as complete. I can promise you, you will find things to
fix that will improve the data.

There are a lot!

There will be many other issues (unconnected ways, unclosed ways etc etc)
that are quite quick and easy to fix so please take the extra few mins at
the end of a tile to improve pre-existing data.
